In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:
~The week began with the one hundredth anniversary of the Armistice. Steyn looked back on the war that made the world we live in, picked out some songs of love and war, and before a live audience performed the only poem we could have chosen for that day.
~Mark's Monday Notebook considered a tale of two migrants and their brief meeting on the streets of Melbourne: It was our most-read piece of the week. Later, Steyn joined a sorely put-upon Tucker Carlson to contemplate Hillary Clinton's third presidential run. Click below to watch:
~On Tuesday Mark swung by "The Dennis Miller Option" to discuss the US midterms, the Armistice, Mark Twain, Rudyard Kipling, Doug McClure and more. Click below to listen:
Steyn and Miller will be on stage together for the first time in a must-see mini-tour of Pennsylvania and western New York (also not too inconvenient for any Ontario fans) - and at all four events there's a special opportunity to meet Dennis and Mark immediately after the show.
~On Wednesday Steyn joined John Oakley on Toronto's Global News Radio 640 to chew over an unusually raw political memoir in Ontario and the interminable recount in Florida:
~On Thursday's edition of "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Mark's hard heart was briefly cheered by a feelgood story that suddenly went bad:
~Mark's weekend column noted the passing of Marvel Comics impresario Stan Lee and, in the age of X-Men and Avengers, wondered whatever happened to non-super heroes. For our Saturday movie date he saluted the screenwriter of Butch Cassidy and The Princess Bride, William Goldman.
Our marquee presentation was the latest nightly audio adventure in our series Tales for Our Time - Steyn's reading of Baroness Orczy's classic tale of France's Reign of Terror, The Scarlet Pimpernel. Click for Part Three, Part Four, Part Five, Six, Seven, Eight and Nine - or start right at the beginning and enjoy a good old binge-listen.
Tales for Our Time is made possible thanks to members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are profoundly grateful. You can find more details about the Steyn Club here. And don't forget our special Gift Membership, not to be confused with our SteynOnline gift certificates, either or both of which make a fine birthday or Christmas present.
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week - and continues with a very busy few days for Mark on TV and radio.
